Observational study characterized by analyzing data prospectively collected and developed by a researcher at the Institute of Cardiology Aloysio de Castro-RJ. Prospective observational analysis of a group of five motorcycle riders (*HD/84-13.3) exposed to a maximum altitude of 4133m returning in 14 hours to sea level. Starting off with concepts in the literature about the effects of Altitude on the organism, and taking into consideration that there are changes in cardiorespiratory physiology that can generate clinical symptoms, the identification of those changes and the correlation with the analysis of body temperature, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, heart rate and blood pressure analyzed every 1000 meters in the moments of ascent and descent can together add clinical evidence to the studies already carried out and favor prevention and acclimatization procedures.
